The Easy Part is Done

After Yesterday's fun we get to removing the old equipment.

Equipment removed from the backplane. We have a new one ready to go. 

Like I said, this is easy. Reconnecting field wiring will be a bit more challenging. 

One BIG thing that worked out for us today is that we were able to remove the terminal strips from the I/O modules.  Even if we were to lose wire numbers on the wires themselves we still have the actual terminal designations to go by. 

Tomorrow? Install new backplane and terminate the last Fiber segment that goes to here. 

I know. I have no life. I will try to keep posting on our progress





  1. I have been there and done that fun.

  2. Meh... I'd br cross-checking those wires... Just sayin... BTDDT, hosed up 1400 phone lines...

    1. Pfft. NFO, 1400 phone lines are nothing. If you did something stupid on one of thesethese (Western Electric 5ESS) back in the day it was uh, exciting!

  3. wire numbers? terminal designations?
    Looks like a total clusterf**k to me.
    good Luck!

  4. Now I know why we're moving to a wireless world...

  5. I don't even know what that stuff is. I see all those wires and the only thing I can think is where's the spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese?!
